Hoarding in the elderly community is a relatively common issue that can have a serious impact on individuals, family members and the community. Changes in life conditions, including living alone and less frequent social interaction, in addition to mental health issues such as preexisting personality disorders, depression or dementia all place seniors at a greater risk.

The Cognitive Rehabilitation and Exposure/Sorting Treatment (CREST) community program offers a personalized and compassionate approach for helping older adults with hoarding behaviors and mental health needs.
